A friend of mine reminded me of this poem, titled Magic Carpet,  by Shel Silverstein –  

Magic Carpet

 You have a magic carpet
That will whiz you through the air,
To Spain or Maine or Africa
If you just tell it where.
So will you let it take you
Where you’ve never been before,
Or will you buy some drapes to match
And use it On your Floor?

We have all been given the gifts that will allow us to go anywhere we want to go.  How we choose to use them is up to us.
